I Know She Does Not Think of Me

I know she doesn’t think of me
As I think of her in kind;
Like gentle rain on flowers dancing 
Easy on my mind. 
She doesn’t know what I don’t show so
Deep within my being;
This feeling of forever-ness
And loveliness I’m seeing. 
The way she walks, talks and whispers
Softly like a breeze;
Flowing like a river sweetly 
To the wistful, waiting sea. 
Perchance she does not recognize
The way I turn within
Into someone other than 
The man I’ve always been.
From day to day and year to year 
As clear as mirrors tell; 
Until she looks into my eyes 
And casts her magic spell.
As real as any dream comes true 
And hatred has no bite;      
I’m sure she feels the way I do
As sure as wrong is right.
Dare I say she’s mine today     
Without more than wishful hope;
To touch her hand and understand 
I’m up against the ropes.
With blood stained cheeks from restless sleep
Deep down on the canvas floor;
Where I lie dying and see her flying
In my mind forevermore.

    Uh oh, this touches me deeply Terry, makes me wonder who this mystery woman is and how the story all fits together. As usual, your exquisite rhyme flows effortlessly and there is no emotion left undone. It is always pleasure to read your poetry as there is the touch of reality blended with magic. A pure delight. Love, Elizabeth
